Research

My current research excavates the relationships among feminism, gender, psychology, and policy since World War II. I examine how feminist social scientists developed and communicated a science of gender that challenged traditional gender ideologies and informed policy from the institutional to the national level. I focus on women’s education and employment, violence against women, and women’s mental health. These questions form the core of my current book project, The Science and Politics of Gender: Feminism, Psychology, and Policy in Post-WWII America. 

I am also working with a team to produce a video series to teach psychology students the fundamentals of gender-based analysis. This project is funded by the Teaching and Public Understanding of Science grants program of the Association for Psychological Science. Finally, I have an ongoing collaboration with the Women’s Programs Office of the American Psychological Association and the Cummings Center for the History of Psychology to document the history and contemporary contributions of women of colour to psychological science, practice, and to create social change.
